to earlier between how science deals with this question and how lawyers deal with this question is that you actually get a fundamental disconnect between the two systems. so you mentioned that lack of emotional control or lack of ability to control your preferences might lead to insanity, but, in fact, in most jurisdictions as you know, that's not true. after hanky was acquitted under the american law institute test because he could not control his behavior, congress in most state jurisdictions changed the law, got rid of the lack of emotional test, the a.l.i. test and now in most jurisdictions, the nontest requires that you demonstrate that you can't distinguish right from wrong. so now we have, and again, the law uses science for the law's own purposes, but what is problematic here is the disconnect. from the criminal side, if you lack emotional control, you go to prison because you can't win under the test because the test doesn't apply. when you walk out of prison and you lack emotional control, you get civilly committed. so what we have is a fundamental disconnect between how we view p

. as for answers? science, i know, has them. theology, i've wondered..... where to begin? begin with the beginning. every thing has a beginning. so the universe had a beginning. no, not necessarily. some scientists claim that the universe did not have a beginning. and some theologians contend that the universe did not need a beginning. what? no beginning of the universe? how'd that be possible? science and theology can each challenge this common idea. did the universe have a beginning? i'm robert lawrence kuhn and closer to truth is my journey to find out. traditionally, in both science and theology, the cosmos was from everlasting - without beginning - until, in the mid 20th century, big bang cosmology became accepted. beginnings bring meaning - and i start with the science. when we want to understand something - anything we often ask, "where did it come from?" "how did it start?" but some say the universe is different. because the universe is not "some thing" - it's the whole thing! that's why - first - we must ask, whether the universe had a beginning? i begin with a cosmologist who focuses on
